"In the hamlet of Inverawe, New Hampshire, Eddie Ryan, the young local undertaker, and his family have a Christmas Eve surprise.  In the middle of the night, like Santa on his sleigh, Cody, a freelance logger, steers his enormous truck and equipment up Ryan's front lawn - with the severed body of his partner tied to the front.
Cody eventually moves in with the Ryan's, and the two men spend the next year discovering the town's quirks and secrets: there's Dome, the ex-motorcycle daredevil finally liberated by the death of his 35-stone wife; old Raudabaugh, the maple-syrup king, sleeping through the fiery destruction of his plant; crazed Mrs Kennedy, the town gossip; Louis Poissant, the secretive veal-raiser, whose farm is populated by seventeen orphaned nieces and nephews, the mysterious Dr Pot, the Vietnamese boat refugee and local GP, who fills his lollipops with sedatives to quiet unruly children; and many many more.  All have stories to tell, and each is more fantastic than the next."
